Hi guys I'm new to northern VA. Where are the best spots to pick up retro games in the Metro DC area? I'm only familiar with Estarland thus far! Thanks!

When looking at the calendar ahead, these are the weekends we can try DuClaw at Arundel Mills...
September 8th
September 15th
September 29th
October 6th (I might be out of town this weekend),
October 13th
October 20th

Personally, I'd lean towards the 15th, 29th (might be the best), or the 13th. I took out the weekend Intervention Convention happens so nothing conflicts.


I don't know of anything I have in Oct. For Sept, I don't remember. My wife decides all that. I always try to attend anyway.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

I am good with either, though the 8th is kind of soon.

I live about 5 minutes away from Arundel Mills. I would love to come and join in on the meet up if you guys wouldn't mind another in the group.

Have you guys decided on a date yet?

October 6th no longer works for me. I think I'll put October 13th down as the date for me. We can change it if something comes up.

I won't be able to make it, work schedule is changing and won't have enough coverage in October. Hopefully I can make the next one.

Boo, I'd like to go. But I'll be doing my extralife marathon on the 13th (Had to move it up a week so a friend could participate)

Have fun everyone :)

Out of all the Best Buy's in the area, the one at Bailey Crossroads is the only one who would accept video game trade ins without a receipt. That's absurd.

I've only attempted to trade in stuff at 1 Best Buy location (Towson) and I had no trouble except for a couple of games that were still shrinkwrapped. He wouldn't take those without a receipt, but he did tell me to just take them home, open them, and bring them back tomorrow.

I had no issues at White Marsh, MD best buy. Even took games without the UPC code without issues.

Different counties have different policies about game trades. At some BBs you have to prove that you bought it from BB to trade it in at all.
I think I can swing by the meetup ~3pm

Went to the one in Bailey's Crossroads and they took all of them without a problem. What a hassle, and I only went to such extremes because of the 100% bonus. Otherwise I would have gone to a gamestop.

Eh, I might come if I don't have work and there are people trading Game Boy stuff. Is this just for trading games, or also consoles and accessories?
